Spring Vacation

Sorry I've been incommunicado for a few days but we've been busy entertaining house guests. Liz's cousin Sandy and her husband Rob came from Phoenix (where it's been in the 80's and sunny) to visit us here Boston (where it is COLD and sometimes rainy--luckily there was no snow while they were here). We had a wonderful visit. It's always fun to have visitors because it gets you out of the house to do the touristy things you forget about that are so abundant in a city like this. We enjoyed great meals at Giacomo's in the North End and at Border Cafe in Harvard Square. Sandy and Rob walked most of the Freedom Trail one day and then Liz drove them over to the USS Constitution (pictured) later in the week as it's only open Thurs-Sun this time of year. We were sad to see them go and hope to be able to visit them in Phoenix some time soon.

Today, we start a vacation of our own, as Liz's Spring Break has just begun. We are heading down to Philadelphia, PA to visit some of her family and be tourists ourselves. We haven't really decided what else we'll try to see during our trip (perhaps New York, Baltimore or even DC). So, look for pictures here later this week.
